Description: Ever wanted to be an Elephant and catch donuts on your trunk?? Of course you have and now YOU CAN!! Donut Distraction is the great party-fun game for all ages that puts you in the shoes of an Elephant with a crazy trunk in zero gravity with a variety of mad games to play!! Dash around catching as many donuts as you can in DONUT DASH – Look out for the Golden Donut to double your score but don’t touch the Dodgy Donut that reduces your score!! Next dodge donuts for as long as you can in DONUT DODGE but don’t touch the instant Death Donut – How long can YOU last?? Then go crazy in DONUT DESTROY and smash as many donuts as you can in 60 seconds, double points for smashing with the trunk!!
Review: Over the years, as you might imagine I have played some pretty odd games with my VR headsets. Some of them have left me open-jawed wondering what I just watched and left me thinking I had seen it all. Then…along comes Donut Distraction to once again shock me and leave me thinking I have seen it all. You play the role of an elephant with its large, long trunk and you need to hover up as many tasty donuts as you can! It’s silly, it’s fun and while not something us adults will enjoy for long the little ones will love playing it.
There isn’t much to this game, in fact, there probably isn’t £2.09’s worth of content! But for sheer ingenuity and use of VR I have to say it is well worth a look. It’s not like it’s poorly made neither as it looks quite polished! It’s just that it is as weird as VR games come.
